Introducing Kayenta

A top contender for stray-dog capital of Arizona, Kayenta is a cluster of businesses and mobile homes around the junction of Hwys 160 and 163. It's only draw is being the closest town to Monument Valley, some 20 miles away. It has gas stations, motels, restaurants, a supermarket and an ATM.

The Burger King near the junction has a well-meaning but minimal exhibit on the Navajo Code Talkers. Roland's Navajoland Tours and Sacred Monument Tours offer vehicle, hiking and horseback-riding tours through Monument Valley.
